The UKIPT

In its four years the UKIPT has ascended towards the top of the UK poker tour pack, rivaling the GUKPT, Sky Poker Tour, and the Genting Poker Series as top flight UK poker tournaments.

The London tournament series (the Grand Final of the UKIPT season) is part of the larger PokerStars EPT London series, and is one of the best attended tournaments of the year.
